    I have been contacted to cut and transport telephone poles about 20 miles for a guy. He wants 3 15 ft. poles cut 2 22ft poles 2 11ft poles and 1 9 ft. pole I will cut the poles load them and unload them then he will install. I was thinking somewhere around 600 b/c I will have to make mulitple trips and those things are heavy. What would you charge? Thanks in advance:usflag:

    $300. - 2hrs @ $150.per hr. I'am sitting in the office of my brothers towing -hauling co. He said 1 hr to cut and load on rollback. 1hr to deliver and onload. 120' at 40lbs(or less)per foot would be 4800lbs. This would fit on a 7000lb rated trailer. Do you have the right tools to do the job?
